Back to Routine....

January is nearly over...

Harrison has turned 3 on the 18th
3 I can't believe he is 3
My grand babies are growing up.

I have started back at the markets again for 2016
The first for the year was at Woodlands of Marburg on the Saturday.

Sunday we were back at Queens park here in Toowoomba.
This is my favorite market.

I have enjoyed getting back into the market scene again after the Christmas break.

Cassie had her Bridal shower last week end.

Such a fun day for her and very memory making.
These are the days for her to enjoy, I still remember all my bridal showers...
Seems not that long ago 29 years isn't that long.

Only 2 weeks until her big day.

 Australia Day has been and gone.

Which means one thing...
The holidays are finished and the school year has begun again.
William is growing up so fast, year 8 this year. He is the last one to be at school now sighhhhh

So now it is time to find that early morning school routine again.
It is a bit hard after 8 weeks of summer holidays but I am sure we will be back to it in no time.

Meanwhile I decided to start of rearranging my bedroom.
First it was a good clean and dust from top to bottom, then I was able to move the bed around to under the window.

I am going to do one room a day until the house is all clean.
House work hasn't been high on the list through the holidays so there is plenty to do...
Well that and Cassie's wedding.

Enjoy the rest of your week....

Happy New Year.....

Welcome to the New Year.....
The month before Christmas has been go go for us. We have had
Lots of markets to do as well as the shop before Christmas.

Christmas was here before we knew it.
Bruce and I took 
Harry, Mason and Will to the Christmas lights.

Was so much fun with these three ratbags.
They loved all the lights and displays.

Charlie our little Christmas elf...

All of the children and grandchildren were home this Christmas.
7 grandchildren to celebrate Chrissy much noise woops I mean no fun hahah

Christmas lunch was in the new Shed where 22 people sat very 

 Cassie got engaged over Christmas and here she is showing off her bling.
She will be marrying a wonderful young Christian man, that is just right for her.

With Christmas over we saw the new year in celebrating Robertson's 18th.

He isn't 18 until the 7th but with all the family home we had his party early.
A very late night was had by all....

The birthday cake was candle licking good as well.

So as you can see things have been busy.....
This week I am spending time in my garden unwinding and looking forward to the new year.

I have spent a couple of days cleaning and rearranging the shop at
The Old Dairy which reopens this Friday.
I have so enjoyed the year of 2015.....It has been a good busy year.

This year will see us slowing down somewhat...We will continue to do
markets and have the shop....Bruce will continue his plumbing business and now has Robbie on board so things will be easier for him...

Are you looking forward to this new year?
I am getting a cup of tea and off to see how you are all going....
